    CD-Key tied to Account??

    This was started in another thread but was off-topic so I started this thread to clarify. I always thought the same as Raena. If I went to my Sisters house and played on her computer it would be under her CD-Key, since that is the computer that her version was installed on. The CD-Key unlocks the program for that computer, not an account. So your acct will be tied to the CD-Key that was used to install the game on the computer that your playing on.

    And let me add, for those of you who are into purchasing accounts from e-bay and the like ... you don't know (1) how many accounts they have sold and (2) you don't know what the seller is doing on that CD key or anyone else they've sold accounts to.

    Bottom line, don't be lazy, don't buy accounts and don't cheat. They haven't banned accounts in a while, but that doesn't mean they aren't going to. Don't get caught in a messy web.

    Is it possible for a CD key generator to come up w/ a key currently used? Just thinkin of another possibilty for CD key hijacks other than the 3rd party d/ls, keyloggers, etc....

    Hmm... So an Account you gain through EBay, Giveaway, Contest Winner, Etc.. can be banned at any time because the CD-Keys owner is doing the naughty with his other accts? This could work in reverse too, you could gain an acct for whatever reason then go on a botting spree without any repercussions other than that account being banned.

    Yup, that's the bottom line of it.
